AENC Presents the 2017 Legislative Reception Honoring Members of the 2017 General Assembly

Save the Date: Wednesday January 25, 2017

It’s become an AENC tradition to hold the AENC Legislative Reception on the first day of the legislative session. Having the reception early in the session consistently attracts a large crowd of legislators and executive and judicial branch officials.

Sponsorship of the AENC Legislative Reception provides your organization a unique recognition opportunity among North Carolina’s leading trade and professional association leaders, and offers you and your members and/or clients a great opportunity to interact with members of the General Assembly and elected state officials.

Your sponsorship form must be received by 5:00 PM on January 1, 2017 in order for your organization to be listed in the official invitation that will be sent to legislators and special government and judicial officials.

If you cannot participate as a full sponsor, you have the option to purchase individual non-sponsor tickets using the attached sponsorship form.

Venue and Date

The Nature Research Center at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences 
Wednesday, January 25, 2017, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Benefits of Sponsorship

Each sponsor receives 10 tickets to attend the Legislative Reception along with 10 clearly identified sponsor name badges. Sponsors will be listed on the invitation to legislators, on sponsor signage and in all pre-event publicity.

Connect face to face with lawmakers and other state government leaders. Promote your organization and the role it plays in North Carolina.
